Very important to what I'm doing for my job & had some insightful lectures. Sometimes it can be repetitive, but I saw that as a chance to reinforce important points of the strategy.

Structured, illustrated w/ solid examples, delivery is excellent from a professional who clearly loves explaining, directly applicable. Highly recommend it.
Frequently Asked Questions
When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
What will I get if I purchase the Certificate?
When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.
What is the refund policy?
You will be eligible for a full refund until two weeks after your payment date, or (for courses that have just launched) until two weeks after the first session of the course begins, whichever is later. You cannot receive a refund once you’ve earned a Course Certificate, even if you complete the course within the two-week refund period. See our full refund policy.
Is financial aid available?
Yes, Coursera provides financial aid to learners who cannot afford the fee. Apply for it by clicking on the Financial Aid link beneath the "Enroll" button on the left. You’ll be prompted to complete an application and will be notified if you are approved. Learn more.
Frequently asked questions about Influencer Marketing Strategy
Q: Is it worth paying Kim Kardashian West $500,000 for a single Instagram post?
A: Good question. In this course, we will take a close look one of Kim’s Instagram posts, which says, “#ad Excited to be partnering with @sugarbearhair to share their amazing hair vitamins with you! These chewable gummy vitamins are delicious and a favorite part of my hair care routine #sugarbearhair.” You will learn how to calculate the number of orders that Kim’s sponsored post needed to generate for SugarBearHair to get a positive return on marketing investment (ROMI).
Q: How do I identify the right influencers?
A: Identifying the right influencers is hard. In this course, I will show you how to use 3 different tools to discover the most relevant influencers for your campaign. Why so many? Because each one has different strengths and weaknesses. And a decade ago, I used a fourth tool, but the company that made it has been closed. So, I don’t want you to become too dependent on any one tool to find the right influencers.
Q: How do I find the right engagement tactics?
A: In this course, I will share several examples of influencer outreach best practices, which I call “schmooze optimization.” This is the process of making casual conversation with influential individuals who can help you to achieve measurable business goals. In 2012, Mark Huffman, the Integrated Production Manager at Procter & Gamble, said that his key takeaway from the conference where I coined the term was the concept of optimized schmoozing. And it’s worked for a wide variety of B2B, B2C, and nonprofit organizations – although I will share the story of one brand which is used to treat “jock itch” that my agency wasn’t able to help because we couldn’t find any key influencers who wanted to promote their content.
Q: How should I measure the performance of my programs?
A: It depends. Which marketing goals will your organization focus on over the next 12 months? This course will teach you how to measure the success of your programs with the appropriate key performance indicators (KPIs). If it’s brand awareness, then you will want to learn how to measure brand lift. If it’s engagement, then you will want to learn how to measure applause, conversation, and amplification rates. If it is lead generation, then you will want to learn how to track influencer campaigns in Google Analytics. And if it is being successful at tracking ROI, then you will want to learn how to calculate return on marketing investment (ROMI), which is different than ROI.
